Permissions and Ownership of files all messed up
Posted on 2004-10-04
Some changes have been made to the security on a folder to only allow access to certain people. Long story short there was a miscommunication and things went bad.
Our folder structure looks like this
When I changed the security on the Docs folder, the same security settings got set to all folders and files below, like it should. But when I changed it to its "correct" settins the permissions did not filter down. I fixed everything for the folders, but there is still a problem with the files.
It seems like the owner of the files is no longer Administrator. I can manually take ownership of these files 1 by 1 and then fix the security. Is there a fast way for changing the owner of these files so I can set their security settings correctly?
